The Beer Babe

Weyerbacher – Quad

I feel like I’m going back in time, investigating the mysteries of the origin of a superhero. One of my favorite brews is Weyerbacher Blasphemy, their quad, taken to new heights of insanity by aging. So, when I saw the quad itself, I felt like I wanted to go back to the roots of one of my favorite things.

The quad pours, as most quads do, with almost no head, in a syrupy continuous pour with a steady cloudy dark amber. The smell is silky and alcoholic, that kind of intoxicating Belgian smell that makes a beer-lover swoon. 
I was surprised at the taste of this one. The Blasphemy is balanced and smooth, sweet, alcoholic and warm. The quad is much sharper. I feel like the aging process must have mellowed the alcoholic sting – this one you can taste and feel. I like it, it doesn’t hurt the beer, but I can feel the tingle and sting of the 11.8% ABV. This is a fine brew and something that you could sip all night. It is one of those that you can’t drink quickly, and wouldn’t want to drink straight from the bottle. The sweetness is a really nice touch, and in the end it is something extremely refined and enjoyable.
Weyerbacher’s website says that it goes best in a brandy snifter or wine glass, and I’d agree. It is also the strongest beer they make, confirming my suspicion that the alcohol mellows in the Blasphemy a bit. I really wish I could get Weyerbacher here. I’d save this for special occasions. This would have been a good one to have on election day – just for the quad representing the four years ahead – and for the alcoholic content to soothe voter fears as they stayed glued to the television all night. 
This is also something that I would like to age myself, and the next time I see this I’ll be putting it away.

    Beers can also be harmful to one’s health especially those that have high alcohol volume percentage. Always drink in moderation in order to avoid illnesses relating to alcohol.
